As the cave was getting darker, Four was having some difficulty at navigating. She almost bumped into the cave’s wall several times. The same thing happened to Riaa. Meanwhile Ilisono swam like usual with her super sight, while Kave, who seemed to be very familiar with the area, never faced any problem.
As she was fed up bumping into rocks and stuff, Riaa came closer to Kave and tapped her shoulders.
“Ugblll….” Riaa’s pointing right, left, up and down. She’s trying to tell Kave that she couldn’t understand where to go. Kave’s opened her mouth that was shut really tight to prevent water entering her body, as if she figured out something.
With her toned body Kave swam to the side and touched the odd-colored mineral on the walls. Surprisingly, the mineral started glowing. As Kave touched any mineral she found on the way after that, light started to enter the cave and soon it became really bright. Four and Riaa looked at each other and nodded. Riaa gave Kave a thumbs up, then they continue swimming.
As she become the tail of the team, Four was relaxing. She’s trying to enjoy this swim as much as possible. Though, she felt a weird feeling as she swam farther and deeper.
Then, in front of them was a larger cave. It’s also brighter even without the mineral’s light. Four thought the goal’s probably closer than she though. She felt rather relieved as she let some bubbles out while swimming forward.
The ones on the front were Kave and Riaa. They entered the larger cave first and then—
With her own eyes, she saw Kave and Riaa gone just like that. The last thing Four saw was them entering the cave, then what happened? Ilisono, who’s also wondering, looked back to Four. It seemed like she’s not sure if she should move forward. Four answered with a nod. They proceed to enter the larger cave.
After entering the cave, Four and Ilisono understood what happened. A force was pushing them from behind, launching them forward with full speed. They both couldn’t fight the force—they didn’t have a choice but following the stream.
As they were carried by the force, both let out large air bubbles, showing how surprised they were. Four was thinking, where is the end of the stream? Where are they going? She kind of hoped she could find an air pocket in the destination, but she’s not pretty sure.
